Leave Baby Wildlife Alone
The human desire to help baby, orphaned or injured wildlife is an admirable trait. However, "helping" or "rescuing" wildlife can often have unintended consequences for the animal, including death. In most cases, the best thing a person can do for a wild animal is to leave it alone.
Deer Fawns and Elk Calves
The parents will usually continue to care for the baby, if people and pets stay away.
Fallen Nests with Eggs or Nestlings
Some birds, such as quail, ducks and geese, nest on the ground in Arizona.
If your or your pet discovers a nest with eggs, the best thing to do is leave it alone and avoid the area. The parents are likely to return if the nest is left undisturbed.
If you startle a family of quail and the young disperse, leave the area and wait for the parents to call the family back together.
If the parents do not collect the babies after an hour,contact the nearest department office or visit www.azgfd.gov/rehab for a list of licensed rehabilitators.
